The 2018 Ford Escape features a dashing exterior, coupled with mesmerizing interior. Available in four trim levels: Escape S, Escape SE, Escape SEL and Escape Titanium, these are solid compact SUVs.

While the 2018 Escape has come a long way from its rugged farm truck roots, this is still a very capable vehicle in a more modern and approachable exterior.

Interior is where the 2018 Ford Escape shines the most. There’s plenty of interior space and ample quality materials throughout. However, the front seat might take a bit getting used to. Sync infotainment system and a touchscreen display will keep you connected while on the road. There are plenty of safety and comfort features that you’d appreciate as well. The 390-watt, 12-speaker Sony audio system on the Titanium trim is something to think about if you’re into music.
